After nearly three years and millions of tax dollars, the Trump-Russia collusion probe is about to be resolved. Emerging in its place is newly unearthed evidence suggesting another foreign effort to influence the 2016 election - this time, in favor of the Democrats.
Ukraine's top prosecutor divulged in an interview aired Wednesday on Hill.TV that he has opened an investigation into whether his country's law enforcement apparatus intentionally leaked financial records during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign about then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort in an effort to sway the election in favor of Hillary Clinton.
The leak of the so-called "black ledger" files to U.S. media prompted Manafort's resignation from the Trump campaign and gave rise to one of the key allegations in the Russia collusion probe that has dogged Trump for the last two and a half years.
Ukraine Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko's probe was prompted by a Ukrainian parliamentarian's release of a tape recording purporting to quote a top law enforcement official as saying his agency leaked the Manafort financial records to help Clinton's campaign.

Dems colluded with Ukraine and Russia. No investigation. The perps are well known. Time for citizen arrests? Just as a pay back, how about citizen SWAT raids?
Page already pulled from The Hill.
What were the Ukrainians hoping to get from that old bag? More MORe’s and body armour? Or did they think we’d start WW3 over them? Either way they would be betrayed.
Joe Biden is going to have a Ukraine problem, too...
Lutsenko accused the Obama-era U.S. embassy in 2016 of interfering in his ability to prosecute corruption cases, saying the U.S. ambassador gave him a list of defendants that he would not be allowed to pursue and then refused to cooperate in an early investigation into the alleged misappropriation of U.S. aid in Ukraine.
Lutsenko provided me with a letter from the embassy, supporting part of his story by showing that a U.S. official did in fact ask him to stand down on the misappropriation-of-funds case. We are gravely concerned about this investigation for which we see no basis, an embassy official named George Kent wrote to the prosecutors office.
Unlike the Steele Dossier, where the deep-state accepted 2nd and 3rd hand accounts of Trump collusion, this State Department reacts with . . .
The State Department on Wednesday issued a statement declaring that it no longer financially supports Lutsenkos office in its corruption-fighting mission and considers his allegation about the do-not-prosecute list an outright fabrication.
Solomon reports: "My reporting, however, indicates Lutsenko isnt the only person complaining about the U.S. embassy in Kiev."
Russophobia neocons’ favorite Ukrainians preferred Hillary?
what a surprise.
Corruption in Ukraine? I would be shocked to hear this, shocked!
